Graduate Programs Rank Among Nation’s Best

Faculty and students at CSU’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital have treated everything from dogs and cats to penguins and turtles.

CSU’s veterinary school is one of the top programs in the country, according to the U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 Best Graduate School edition.

CSU’s Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program is ranked No. 3 in the newest ranking of veterinary training programs. The magazine rates veterinary schools every four years, and the CSU program has held a spot among the top three vet schools in the country for at least two decades.

“We’re proud and humbled to be recognized as one of the very best veterinary schools in the world, and we’re pleased to help represent overall excellence in teaching, research, outreach, and clinical services at Colorado State,” said Dr. Mark Stetter, a veterinarian and dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

The DVM Program recently has increased student services in the areas of career development, wellness, and financial services to support students in their career transitions. The program is expanding international and other unique learning opportunities, with new veterinary partnerships near Todos Santos, Mexico, and in Alaska. It also stresses the role of veterinary medicine in translational research, which provides new knowledge to benefit both animal and human health.
